Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar, August 2014

Irwin Mitchell is alarmed to hear of reports of illness amongst holidaymakers who stayed at the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar, in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, during August 2014. 

It has been reported by guests that they fell ill whilst staying at the hotel. One holidaymaker was admitted to hospital whilst in the Dominican Republic and has said that he was later diagnosed with Shigella upon his return to the UK. The man described suffering from symptoms of diarrhoea, blood in his stools and stomach cramps.

Despite a number of positive reviews, holidaymakers have raised concerns relating to the food at the resort. On occasions, dishes were reportedly left uncovered for long periods of time and food was not served hot enough.

Irwin Mitchell specialises in helping victims of illness outbreaks in the UK and abroad to gain justice. The team have successfully represented victims who have fallen ill in such outbreaks and have recovered compensation for tens of thousands of illness victims in the UK and abroad.

If you also travelled to the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar in Punta Cana and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you if you have suffered from gastric illness after staying at this hotel.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
